The feature request in our backlog for the next release.
I spoke with someone at Plesk (tech support) who forwarded our concerns onto their dev team. I received this response:
"I got word from the developers. WebP support is on our roadmap, we do plan to add its support to Obsidian. Currently, we are focusing on finishing Obsidian itself and after it's global release, maybe 1-2 months after, WebP support is planned to be added."
We are using Onyx so I requested more information about that, but haven't heard back yet. I'm assuming it won't be added to that version.
It's easy enough to recompile from the command line, so we'll have to stick with that for now.
If you can't wait for them to include the flag on install - Recompile the module as outlined here: https://talk.plesk.com/resources/how-to-compile-php-gd-so-module-with-webp-support.4/
The guide is for 7.1.11, if you have a different version just replace it with your version number, eg: 7.2.21, it's easy.Chad supported this idea ·
